The United States Marine Corps Mounted Color Guard has represented the Marine Corps in events across the United States for the last 54 years. This is the last remaining Mounted Color Guard within the Marine Corps today. The Marines primarily ride mustangs, adopted from the Bureau of Land Management's "Adopt a Horse" program. The horses and Marines train together weekly to maintain their performance readiness. The Mounted Color Guard strives to maintain its traditions; and, standards of excellence fitting their storied past, and it is a privilege of every Marine who has been given the opportunity to be a part of its legacy.
This unit is stationed at Marine Corps Logistics Base, Barstow, California.
Riders for the 2023 San Bernardino Sheriff's Rodeo are:
Sergeant Christian Drumheller from Scottsville, Virginia
Sergeant John Davis from Houston, Texas
Sergeant Joseph Kwitonda from Grand Rapids, Michigan
Corporal Natasha Ochsner from Albany, Oregon
